getting ready...

Paul's entire family, some of whom we haven't seen in over 3 years, as in pre-Finn, arrive this afternoon for the long weekend.  The banner is set and the kids are excited...

We made a quick meal last night of smoothies with plain yogurt, blueberries, peaches, pineapple, carrots, Amazing Grass and apple juice, so we could continue making the place ready.

Elizabeth even got in on the action by gathering daisies from the horse pasture behind us.

I'm sure I'll be back over the course of the weekend with pictures and stories to share.  I hope everyone has a lovely Memorial Day weekend, unless you're international...then just have a great weekend!   : )


  1. Have fun with family this weekend. Smoothies for dinner sounds perfect for this time of year-who has time to cook?!

  2. Have a wonderful weekend! :)

  3. Do you have a special banner you set out when guests come? Love that orange thing. what is it?

  4. Have a wonderful weekend. I love the fabric you used for your is such a happy color!

  5. Have a great Memorial Day weekend as a family!

  6. Delena, I actually just made this banner the other day specifically for their visit.

    We just started doing banners a few months ago. I think they are a great way to make things extra special, and the kids loving helping pick out fabrics, etc. :)
